Oracle Database (Unknown Component) vs Oracle Database Unspecified Editions

Jump to solution

Hi

The difference between the Oracle Database (Unknown Component) and Oracle Database Unspecified Edition applications within the ARL seem to be well documented.

https://community.flexera.com/t5/FlexNet-Manager-Knowledge-Base/What-is-the-difference-between-Oracle-Database-Unknown-Component/ta-p/2279 
"...When you see Unknown Component now, this means that it?s unrecognized evidence that?s not linked to a database, which should be ignored"

As this is just for visibility and should be ignored, is there a specific reason as to why these applications are still classified as "Commercial"?
Cant this be given a classifications that does not exhibit as a risk in the environment?

Hello @sibusison7 , thanks for raising this topic.

Indeed, while Oracle Database Unspecified deserves attention, Oracle Database Unspecified Component is a vague signature (just "Oracle" in the installer evidence for 19C) that does not actually represent a commercial product, and we are going to work on making this "component" a "component" classification application.

Thank you for this Nicolas.

This would definitely fix this issues. Do you perhaps have a view on what the ETA would be on such a change in the library?

Kind Regards
